After an embarrassingly long absence, I have returned with some new recs.  This time, the recs are from Harry Potter, Peacemaker Kurogane/Shinsengumi Imon Peacemaker, and La Corda d'Oro ~ Primo Passo ~, all of whom I've been reading since I  last updated.  I know I promised some Bleach recs, but I can't find any at the moment, sorry xD

Title: Accountable
Fandom: Harry Potter
Author:
Dyce
Rating: PG-15
Pairings/Characters: Hermione/Snape, Draco => Hermione, Harry/Ginny, Lupin/Tonks, eventual Snape/Hermione, past Ron/Hermione, Ron/Lavender, Ron/randoms etc ... list seriously goes on.
Warnings: Teenage pregnancy, angst, darkstuff, some mature themes
Summary: Futurefic.  It's OMG good.  I'm not being biased because of the pairing or anything, but this fic was so fucking good.  The characterisation was perfect in every sense of the word.  I loved the way the author portrayed the Trio's maturity, especially Hermione as she dealt with pregnancy and the N.E.W.T.s in the same year and grew to be much more independent and worldly.  This is set post HBP, so beware of spoilers.  And, um, the War is over so there may be characters you miss out on seeing, but who get a mention too.  Draco and Snape have reformed themselves and both find they are attracted to, becoming in love with, Hermione Granger as she progresses through her pregnancy, and the whole characters-reflecting-each-other business really hits.  If I hadn't been yelling at my computer to let the damn page load every chapter or so, I would have thought this was an actual Rowling book.
Status: Multi-chapter, Complete

Title: Everything I've Ever Done
Fandom: Harry Potter
Author:
duj
Rating: PG-13
Pairings/Characters: Snape/Hermione, Neville/Ginny, Harry/Hannah, Ron/Susan, McGonagall/OC, Hermione/OC
Warnings: darkstuff, angst, mature themes
Summary: Futurefic.  This is no longer compatible with the series after OoTP, so the pairings are decidedly different to canon, but it still makes a brilliant read.  It's after graduation, Voldemort has been defeated and Hermione fineds herself apologising to Snape for everything she's ever done to him during her time at Hogwarts - and not just stuff she's done, but what Harry, Ron and all three of them have done.  He, of course, brushes her off.  During the course of the next four years, they're thrown together often because of jobs or social gatherings (that Snape can't avoid).  And, inevitably, they discover they're in love.  Only that the Gryffindor gang are less than pleased, but not that that's ever stopped Hermione!  Very IC and believable!

Title: Everything I've Ever Done: Reunion
Fandom: Harry Potter
Author: duj
Rating: PG-13
Pairings/Characters: Snape/Hermione, Neville/Ginny, Harry/Hannah, Ron/Susan, McGonagall/OC, Percy/OC
Warnings: angst and kids
Summary: Futurefic.  My memory on this fic is a bit hazy, but it's definitely the sequel to Everything I've Ever Done.  Set about eleven years later, the peeps have grown up and had kids of their own attending Hogwarts.  This fic centres around the Weasleys, especially the Percy-leaving-the-family business and Hermione and Snape are out to resolve the conflict between them.  It's very human, very real and believable, so it's highly recommended!
Status: Multi-Chapter, Complete

Title: Thanks
Fandom: La Corda d'Oro ~ Primo Passo ~
Author: princess_dexter
Rating: PG
Pairings/Characters: Yunoki Azuma x Hino Kahoko
Warnings: spoilers until episode 14, character-wise.  Yunoki being sexy.
Summary: Yunoki corners Hino on the rooftop.  It's a very nice fic in terms of characterisation, because the characters aren't under or overdone.  Yunoki was just right, I reckon, and Hino was just agitated enough to be believable.  It's hard to write their characters, I think, because if you tip the scales even a fraction too much, it would spoil the whole fic.  So I applaud the writer for it!
Status: One-Shot, Complete

Title: Makoto
Fandom: Shinsengumi Imon Peacemaker, Peacemaker Kurogane
Author: Moonraven
Rating: PG-13
Pairings/Characters: Hijikata Toshizou x Okita Souji
Warnings: slash, shounen-ai, angst, some dark themes, spoilers for PMK manga volume 3 onwards...
Summary: a series of short ficlets in chronological order based on HijiOki throughout the series.  The tension between the two of them is very moving, since they know death is looming closer and yet they can't make any further move because Okita is scared of inflicting Hijikata as well.  Very in character, which is hard, given Okita's dual character.

18th-Nov-2006 02:52 pm - Tsubasa Chronicles

We're baaaaaaaaaaaack~!  The mods have finished high school!  Please offer our heartfelt apologies at this extended absence of ours ♥ and we promise we will shower you all with ficcage and fun stuff from now on.

Right now, I have been reading Tsubasa Chronicles fanfiction because KuroganexFay is so much love ♥♥♥♥

Title: What You Wish For
Author:

alliterationhor
Fandom: Tsubasa Chronicles
Pairing: Kurogane x Fay D. Flourite
Brief Summary: When the journey comes to an end, Kurogane is faced with a choice that will change his and Fay's relationship - to lose Fay and keep his memories of them, or to give up his memories to Yuuko and be with him?  This fic was great in the sense that there was drama, angst and humour all jumbled together and it was heartwarming as well.  The characters were really IC and there was smut~!  And I've learned from reading this that happy endings don't necessarily mean that past mistakes have to be fixed ^_^
Status: Multi-chapter, Completed

Title: Curriculum Vitae
Author: Mizu-Tenshi
Fandom: Tsubasa Chronicles
Pairing: Kurogane x Fay D. Flourite
Brief Summary: A collection of KuroFay drabbles.  They're building up their resumes by taking up different occupations throughout their journeys that result in a whole lot of fun and some disaster in between ^_^  It's cute, funny and sometimes also very sweet, but also remaining in character and still with the shounen-ai.  Though, of course, it isn't very difficult with CLAMP works ... XD
Status: Multi-chapter, In Progress

Title: A Dummy's Guide to Proper Courtship
Author: Mizu-Tenshi
Fandom: Tsubasa Chronicles
Pairing: Kurogane x Fay D. Flourite
Brief Summary: Another collection of KuroFay drabbles!  A collection of very funny, sweet, fluffy drabbles with a tint of angst somewhere in between to keep the cavities away...I particularly like this because it portrays a variety in the relationship between Kurogane and Fay, not just the brazen, hotheaded warrior and the playful magician.  Very dynamic and with flour sack doujinshi~! created bymarlyn_igloo.
Status: Multi-chapter, Completed

 

 


I'm going to write up some Bleach recs a little later today, but I want to separate them.  So wait for the next post~!

Edit: What is it with the formatting?!  The names of LJ-users keep making a line of their own and it screws up everything ><

27th-Jul-2006 05:01 pm - Poll for Posting Access
I've been doing a lot of thinking lately about the way this community is run. I haven't really discussed this with my co-mods as yet (getting around to it soon!), but I was thinking that maybe this community should be changed to open posting access for all members.

This thought came up because we have been pretty busy lately with our studies. The three of us are going through the final part of our final high school year and school, homework, assignments and studies are bogging us down to the point where participation in fandom is severely limited. Thus this community is also getting neglected.

So I've created a poll to see what you guys think. If there is open posting access, we can spread into different fandoms and not be restricted to PoT, Tenimyu, Naruto and Harry Potter, as has been happening so far since I'm pretty much monogamous in my fandoms (a failing when you're recc-ing things).

If/when this happens, we would also probably be able to spread into media recs, including anime series, dramas, music etc. HOWEVER there will most likely be no file sharing, unless the poster owns those CDs/DVDs themselves, or they're providing a You Tube link or a file someone else has made and they have permission to share it.

Still, it'll be a bit too early at the moment to start planning these things. Fill out the poll below if you're interested in open posting. And please tell your other fandom friends to drop by and join us because the more members we have, the more likely it is that I'll expand the boundaries of this community!!!



Poll #779246 Posting for Members

Would you guys like posting access to this community for your own recs?

Yes
0(0.0%)

The more members we have and the more people who are interested means there will be a bigger chance of this community expanding!!

31st-May-2006 08:04 pm - Tenimyu Recs
Hi all!  Since we've just finished an English assessment task today, I've decided that we're going to celebrate with a new rec-post.  However, this isn't the normal TezuFuji fic recs that I've been serialising for the past few months.  Noooo...this is even better!

For those of you who aren't familiar with Tenimyu (that is, the Prince of Tennis Musical), it's basically a stage show with acting, singing and dancing based on PoT.  There have been two different castings so far and the majority of the fics below are based on the second casting.  Yes, this is RPS (Real Person Slash), so if you're icky with it, please turn away!

Title: Untitled
Author: mari_yagami
Fandom: Tenimyu
Pairing: Takigawa Eiji x Kimeru [TezukaxFuji - first cast]
Brief Summary: So, Kimeru enjoys playing Fuji in the musical and he delights to overhear what the fangirls have to say about how 'cute' he and TakiEiji look together.  So, he approaches TakiEiji about it.  Then, at the after show party of the first musical, TakiEiji comes up behind Kimeru and ... well ... then he abandons Kimeru at the party.  It's a bit angsty, unfinished and the ending of the chapter makes me want to scream UPDATE!!!!!!
Status: Multi-Chapter, In Progress

Title: Embraceable Yuu
Author: serenityrages
Fandom: Tenimyu
Pairing: Shirota Yuu x Aiba Hiroki [TezukaxFuji - second cast]
Brief Summary: Aiba doesn't like to be touched and he doesn't like to touch people.  So Shirota takes it upon himself to get Aiba more comfortable with being touched - and extracts humourous (albeit successful) results!  It's cute and the hair-straightenerfluff killed me XD
Status: One-Shot, Completed

Title: The Philosophy of Tooth Brushing
Author: _pratz_
Fandom: Tenimyu
Pairing: Shirota Yuu x Aiba Hiroki [TezukaxFuji - second cast]
Brief Summary: Shirota considers his teeth-brushing time a haven, until Aiba starts ... watching him while he's brushing his teeth.  But then the younger one gives him a new toothbrush and, well, it's gen!fluff, which I like lots ^_^
Status: One-Shot, Completed

Title: Firsts
Author: _pratz_
Fandom: Tenimyu
Pairing: Shirota Yuu x Aiba Hiroki, slight Aiba Hiroki -> Katou Kazuki [TezukaxFuji, Fuji -> Atobe - second cast]
Brief Summary: Aiba muses about how Katou has been his first for many things in life, even after he's dating Shirota.    It's sweet and slightly sad and it makes my heart go squish.
Status: One-Shot, Completed

Title: The Dangers of Method Acting
Author: serenityrages
Fandom: Tenimyu
Pairing: Shirota Yuu x Aiba Hiroki [TezukaxFuji - second cast]
Brief Summary: Katou [Atobe] is determined to get Shirotan and Aibacchin together!  So he spread s little rumour about them ... that gives disastrously funny results!  The broken-phone effect kicks in and everything is blown way out of proportion, which eventually ends up catching Shirota and Aiba's attentions.  It's funny and made me laugh crazily.
Status: One-Shot, Completed

Title: No Reason
Author: serenityrages
Fandom: Tenimyu
Pairing: Shirota Yuu x Aiba Hiroki [TezukaxFuji - second cast]
Brief Summary: Aiba watches Shirota getting friendly with Katou and doesn't like it.  But, however, he doesn't say anything and this is all about him and getting jealous.  It has a slightly seductive undertone, very hot and passion.  But it isn't smut, so yeah.  But it ended wonderfully, even without the smut.  So go read!
Status: One-Shot, Completed

Title: Love Seems to be the Hardest Word
Author: chamomilefields
Fandom: Tenimyu
Pairing: Shirota Yuu x Aiba Hiroki [TezukaxFuji - second cast]
Brief Summary: Shirota likes Aiba and Aiba likes Shirota!  So why not confess?  Excellent question.  Now watch as they do confess, with the Seigaku and Hyotei boys watching on from behind display sets.  XD  Cute, fluffy and a must read from the breaks of angst - whatever the pairing!
Status: One-Shot, Completed

Title: Of Sex Scene and Sleeping Over || Of Phone Calls and Nurturing || Of Tolerance and Reconciliation ||
Author: _pratz_
Fandom: Tenimyu
Pairing: Shirota Yuu x Aiba Hiroki [TezukaxFuji - second cast]
Brief Summary: Well, recently a trailer was released for June Bride, in which Shirota Yuu stars in.  And in this trailer, there he has a sex scene involving him and his (older) female co-star.  So Aiba gets upset that he wasn't told and goes to sleep over at Katou's place, who then plays mediator and gets them to talk and make up.  Sugary sweet and Shirota is a sap from head to toe XD
Status: Multi-Chapter, Completed

Title: Of Lamppost Climbing and Elevator Banter
Author: _pratz_
Fandom: Tenimyu
Pairing: Shirota Yuu x Aiba Hiroki [TezukaxFuji - second cast]
Brief Summary: Aiba's been dared to climb and lamppost, so he does it.  Shirota freaks out, drags him back into the building and they engage in fluffy banter inside the elevator.  That's basically it, but it was rec-ed for its cuteness and ability to make me wibble with fangirl glee XD
Status: One-Shot, Completed

Title: Flowers and Candy
Author: kat8cha
Fandom: Tenimyu
Pairing: Shirota Yuu x Aiba Hiroki [TezukaxFuji - second cast]
Brief Summary: Shirota and Aiba have been fighting and so Katou [Atobe] and Shiozawa [Mizuki] have taken it upon themselves to help them make up.  Of course, that includes making them both insanely jealous ... convenient closets ahead!  XD
Status: One-Shot, Completed



Right, I'm getting tired.  More will come later (once flaming_icicles has her nice, fast broadband-speed Internet back tomorrow and I'm back on the Net in two days XD)!!

9th-May-2006 07:50 pm - Prince of Tennis 11/15
Eh, I accidentally deleted the original post two recs in while I was downloading something.  So this is a rewrite.  I liked my original comments better though ... >_>

Title: Perfect Schedule
Author: myth720
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Pairing: Fuji Syusuke x Tezuka Kunimitsu
Brief Summary: Notice the change in name order.  This is Fuji!seme and Tezuka!uke, which I don't really like as much as Tezuka!seme.  This story is basically Fuji rocking up to Tezuka's place some time before dinner, having a chat to Ayana-san (Tezuka's mother) and then seducing/screwing Tezuka.  Simple as that.  Oh, and messing up buchou's oh-so-important schedule.  Sorry, also smutty.
Status: One-Shot, Completed

Title: Phantom Love
Author: fairiesgonenuts
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Pairing: hinted Tezuka Kunimitsu x Fuji Syusuke, one-sided OC => Tezuka
Brief Summary:  This is about a girl who wanted to confess to Tezuka on Valentine's Day but died in a hit-and-run accident just 19 days before.  So her ghost comes back to fulfill her last wish, but gets caught iin the act of stalking Tezuka by Fuji.  Then he agrees to help her confess to Tezuka.  Much fun ensues and Fuji actually appears to be a bit straight (only a bit, cos we all know he's gay XD) and then the confession occurs.  Much fun and love, typical and lovable of fairiesgonenuts and I really love her works!
Status: One-Shot, Completed

Title: Photographs || Prologue || 1 || 2 || 3 || 4 || 5 || 6 || 7 || 8 || 9 || Watching Him Watching You ||
Author: shinataku02
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Pairing: Tezuka Kunimitsu x Fuji Syusuke, one sided Saeki Kojiroh => Fuji Syusuke
Brief Summary: This talks about Fuji moving from Chiba to Tokyo and meeting with Tezuka.  It's very IC and believable and that's the kind of fic I like.  Fuji also runs away from home when he hears that they may have to move again because of his father's work and the Saeki => Fuji is just wonderful.  Then the TezukaxFuji-ness hits and it ends just perfectly.  The sidefic is focused on Yumiko and is set around Part Three of Photographs.  There's one-sided Yumiko => Tezuka, but nothing too big and it's only a one-shot soo....
Status: Multi-Chapter, Completed

Title: Private Sky
Author: ruji
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Pairing: Tezuka Kunimitsu x Fuji Syusuke
Brief Summary: It's another 30_lemons fic!  Tezuka and Fuji were originally meant to go camping, but Fuji sprained his ankle and so Tezuka piggy-backed him all the way back to Fuji's house, where they have a nice night under the stars.  You know what I mean by night, right? XD  Fluffiness and smut, so beware all you underaged readers!  Scat!
Status: One-Shot, Completed

Title: Proximity
Author: spilche
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Pairing: Tezuka Kunimitsu x Fuji Syusuke
Brief Summary: I love confrontation fics, especially when Fuji's lost and Tezuka seems to be the reason why.  This is set in the Tezuka-Atobe match arc, so there's Tezuka-arm-angst and mentions of the forthcoming Tezuka-Echizen match buchou will have before he leaves.  Fuji angsts about where he stands in Tezuka's eyes and Tezuka sets him at ease.  You know, Fuji ... gah *fangirls*
Status: One-Shot, Completed

Title: Raindrops
Author: lina_lau (at word_games)
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Pairing: Tezuka Kunimitsu x Fuji Syusuke
Brief Summary: This is a double-shot angst fic where Fuji has broekn because Tezuka broke up with him before leaving for Germany.  And Tezuka returns to confront him about it and they have a painful confrontation with the rain and the angst and ....... eep!  The angst.  I really wish she'd update though...grr... Recommended for good characterisation and brownie points for angst!
Status: Multi-Chapter, In Progress

Title: Rollover
Author: ruji
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Pairing: Fuji Syusuke x Tezuka Kunimitsu
Brief Summary: Yay!  ruji fic!  Fuji bought naughty dice from a sex store and he distracts Tezuka from work to play with them!  Again with the Fuji!seme thing, not my cup of tea, but this is a ruji fic and it's very fluffily done, so I'll forgive it!  I love Tezuka being all ... Tezuka!perfect boyfriend and yet ... so Tezuka!  *fangirls ruji fics*
Status: One-Shot, Completed

Title: Sakurairo Maukoro
Author: chiaki_yumi
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Pairing: past Tezuka Kunimitsu x Fuji Syusuke
Brief Summary: WOE THE ANGST!!  Cherry blossoms, reluctant breakup fic and getting married!  *cries*  There is beautiful imagery of cherry blossoms, the past, the bittersweet memories.  It's seen through Tezuka's grandchild's POV so there was a sense of innocence about the whole thing that made it so poignant.  The ending made me cry and you should all love and cherish your partners, friends and first loves.  That's an order!
Status: One-Shot, Completed


This instalment is done and you guys should, once again, love and cherish those around you!  Peace out!

Title: Obsession
Author: yuki_scorpio and arithion (at word_games)
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Pairing: Tezuka Kunimitsu x Fuji Syusuke
Brief Summary: [AU] This is an AU fic, set in Cambridge University.  Tezuka's a fresher in engineering and Fuji's a music fresher.  They meet and, well, within a month, they're totally and utterly obsessed with each other.  It's full of UST from both sides here and both characters are kept relatively IC, though Tezuka is scarily possessive with this really intriguing (and yet to be uncovered) past.  I personally liked this fic because it's strong in characterisation and very realistic, especially because they don't have perfect first times ever.  And plus, the smut's gorgeous.
Status: Multi-Chapter, In Progress

Title: Omamori
Author: risquedreams
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Pairing: Tezuka Kunimitsu x Fuji Syusuke
Brief Summary: Fuji mulls over Tezuka and how the two of them interact with each other after practice one day.  This is set post Tezuka-Atobe match (notice that TezuFuji fangirls/writers must write a fic set after this match...) and Fuji muses how Tezuka hates people fussing over him.  It's got strong characterisation and doesn't go overboard with their relationship so that it becomes a big neon sign flashing gawdy colours.
Status: One-Shot, Completed

Title: On That Quiet Saturday
Author: anek
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Pairing: Tezuka Kunimitsu x Fuji Syusuke
Brief Summary: Tezuka and Fuji play tennis on a Saturday and Tezuka's shoulder plays up on him and he drops his racquet while trying to convince Fuji he's all right.   Then Fuji accompanies him home and offers him a massage, which Tezuka accepts.  And well, seduction is one's best friend when it comes down to Tezuka and Fuji, a massage and a bed ^^".  There's no graphic smut (in fact ALL smut is implied here) and Tezuka sounds a bit whipped towards the end when Fuji announces that they are now "a couple".
Status: One-Shot, Completed

Title: Smile || Other Mind
Author: arithion (at word_games)
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Pairing: Tezuka Kunimitsu x Fuji Syusuke
Brief Summary: Smile is one of the best TezukaFuji fics out there and I don't say this lightly.  It's 45 chapters long and focuses entirely on Fuji and Tezuka's relationship throughout the series up to Tezuka leaving for Germany.  It does put more focus on Fuji rather than Tezuka, and how Tezuka tries to see the "real him".  The characterisation of both characters is absolutely brilliant and each major event in the series between the two of them is detailed behind the scenes, winding this fic around the series wonderfully and proving that TezuFuji is, indeed, canonOther Mind is the sidefic to Smile and is all from Tezuka's POV about certain parts of the fic.  The only thing is that Other Mind should be read alongside Smile to be understood.
Status: Multi-Chapter, Completed

Title: Ozone
Author: rageprufrock
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Pairing: Tezuka Kunimitsu x Fuji Syusuke
Brief Summary: I had a hard time tracking this baby down because the author just doesn't post to their own journal!  That, or they never add their PoT fics to memories.  But it's worth it, though it held back the writing of this entry.  This is a fic that spans across all their three years at Seigaku.  Utterly beautiful characterisation and so sweet in a very poignant way that makes everything click together and flow.  And it's not just Tezuka and Fuji's characterisation either.  Everyone's characters are wonderfully done, IC and believable.
Status: One-Shot, Completed

Title: Packing Up
Author: ruji
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Pairing: Tezuka Kunimitsu x Fuji Syusuke
Brief Summary:  Yes, it's another ruji fic!  I told you I'm in love with her TezuFuji fics.  Again, this is a 30_lemons fic that centres around these two characters.  This time it uses the theme: The Gymnasium, or, "Who Likes Short-Shorts?" and has Tezuka and Fuji packing up in preparation for their moving in together for college.  There's a handjob involved!  So it's not full-out sex, but there's sexual activities.  And ooooh, Fuji's Seigaku shorts from first year feature in here!  *cheers*
Status: One-Shot, Completed

Title: Parenthesis
Author: sesame_seed
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Pairing: Tezuka Kunimitsu x Fuji Syusuke
Brief Summary: I don't know.  Somehow, this fic makes me really sad, though it's not exactly depressing.  It's focused on Fuji, how he views people, Tezuka, tennis and his family.  The fact that he's all but given up to being perfect for Tezuka is just heartwrenching.  It kind of jumps between scenes so that I have a feeling that they're set at different points in Fuji's life and yet they all seem to blend together.  The most bittersweet part is when Fuji knows that Tezuka's not looking for someone like him and here's the quote: dark-haired, pale-skinned, eyes slanting up and lashes slanting down, studious and serious like Tezuka but yielding where he's immovable, moon to his sun, shadow to his light. She composes poetry, fixes his meals, carries off kimonos like a royal princess, is knowledgeable about tennis but doesn't play, because Tezuka requires perfection and there's no one more perfect on the tennis court than himself. A soft voice, a sharp mind, and together they'll make pretty, clever babies.
She's very attractive; he expects to fall a bit in love himself.
Status: One-Shot, Completed

Title: Passion Sonata
Author: ruji
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Pairing: Tezuka Kunimitsu x Fuji Syusuke
Brief Summary: ruji doesn't only write for 30_lemons you know.  This is a fic where Tezuka and Fuji play tennis, get aroused and don't know how to feel about being attracted.  Or, at least, Tezuka doesn't know how to accept his obvious desire for Fuji.  Then they have sex and are unofficially together.  So basically this is a fic where they have a sexual relationship while Fuji hangs around waiting for Tezuka to get his act together and accept their imminent coupledom.  Which is cute (and Tezuka's a rapist!! XD) and a very hot, sexy and fun read.
Status: Multi-Chapter, Completed


How was that?  Most of these are one-shots, but the multi-chapter ones are definitely worth reading.  Especially the famous Smile and the hot, sexy and UST-verse of Obsession.  arithion and yuki_scorpio are brilliant writers.  And now that school's starting, I don't know how soon the next post will be, but keep watching!

Also, some homework for you guys (I know, the homework XD):
1) Pimp us please!!!!!
2) Maybe tell us some good fics we should read and then write fics about?
3) Give us the links to aforementioned fics XD

See you next time round!!

Brief Summary: This is an angsty, Yagyuu!introspection fic on why he wears those thick glasses so that no one can see behind them.  I love this because it presents such a sad, realistic side to my favourite (well, they're all my favourites XD) Rikkaidai boy
Quote: In the locker room, Niou pulled a prank and took off these new glasses from Yagyuu's face. He quickly learned that it was a mistake.

Title: Chaos Theory
Author: helga_b
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Pairings: None - there are Seigaku and Rikkaidai boys present
Brief Summary: The Datamen have proposed a joint camp with Seigaku and Rikkaidai!  It's crack and it's gen and I LOVE IT!  There is the portrayal of all our boys as actual teenagers and not friggin' midlife-crisis men dressed as teens, which gives us a side to them that is fun omg Sanada omg !!!  
Quote: It wasn't a Niou-factor of complete uncertainty they had to take into account at all - it was an uncertainty factor of everyone here, really. They were all too insane to know certainty if it hit them with one of Echizen's Twist Serves. 

Title: Didn't It Rain?
Author: helga_b
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Pairings: None - Rikkai gen!
Brief Summary: After practice most of the Rikkai boys decide to go to Yagyuu's place because his is the closest and it's raining.  And, well, they take over his room XD.  It's fun, because it's Rikkai!gen and OMG helga_b writes the best Rikkai!gen ever and...gah, fangirlism.
Quote: Yukimura blinked. "Instead of a Dark Lord, you will have a Queen?" he quoted, raising his eyebrows. "A Queen, Akaya? I'm... Galadriel?"

Title: Victory All Around
Author: helga_b
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Pairings: None - has Rikkaidai boys, Seigaku boys and Hyotei boys
Brief Summary: Rikkaidai at the Nationals.  I've said it once before - this author does the best Rikkai gen.  They're in character, believable and interact beautifully with the other characters - keeping them in character too!  
Quote: Sanada gave a mental shrug and continued on his way. Atobe-who-had-just-lost was not important - not when there were more important things to think of and a third Nationals title to win.

Title: And All You Can Eat
Author: helga_b
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Pairings: None - it has Rikkaidai and Seigaku boys
Brief Summary: After Seigaku defeated Rikkaidai, both teams go out to Kawamura Sushi for dinner.  What ensues is an out-eating contest between Momo and Marui, to see who can eat the most.  And, well, you just have to read on!  It has Yukimura there as well, so I'm not sure where it could be classified in the storyline, but that doesn't matter.  If you want, you can pretend that Yukimura came out of hospital just to eat sushi with them XD
Quote: Eiji snorted. "Saying that Momo eats a lot is like saying water is a bit wet, or something. Understatement of the year." ... "Meh," Niou said. "That's nothing compared to how Marui eats."


Well, enjoy this instalment of Rikkai-Seigaku-Hyotei fic recs!  These were funny, cracky, angsty and a manner of all things good and healthy for fans like us ^_^

19th-Apr-2006 10:01 pm - Prince of Tennis 9/15
Hahaha! This is another instalment of my Prince of Tennis fanfic recommendation series!  We're almost to the end people, but that doesn't mean we're gonna stop here.  There's many more to come!

Title: Many Waters
Author: rageprufrock
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Pairing: Tezuka Kunimitsu x Fuji Syusuke, mentions Golden Pair and mentions various Tezuka pairings
Brief Summary: This is set in the future and Fuji is a professional tennis player, while Tezuka works in internal medicine - but they're living together.  It hurt my heart at first to think that, while Fuji was away at tournaments, Tezuka would have other men over (Atobe included >_<) and, hating any other Tezuka pairing besides TezuFuji, I didn't like this one at first.  It's a very powerful fic and very real and this is why I recommend it, because it doesn't neglect bitter reality (OMG Golden Pair separated o.0), but it still hurts to read it ... it's so sad, though it has a bittersweet ending.

Title: Mata
Author: sinsofwill
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Pairing: Tezuka Kunimitsu x Fuji Syusuke
Brief Summary: I loved this mainly because it was sweet and in character (which is, undeniably, a very important factor of TezuFuji fics - otherwise they don't work!).  It's Fuji's birthday and he's on the phone with Tezuka.  The understanding that comes between the two of them is presented in a style that I love best in such situations.  It seems like it's listing everything, but it really isn't and, well, I have to give you a quote to show you, because I am lost for words to describe it.
The rain stinging across his face, Echizen's sharp, singing pride, oh, it had made him grin, but Tezuka's understanding of that joy, afterwards... he hadn't expected that.

Title: Meant to Be | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 |
Author: shinigami_yumi
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Pairing: Tezuka Kunimitsu x Fuji Syusuke
Brief Summary: This is AU, set about twenty years in the future and Tezuka is a shipping tycoon in America.  Fuji has gotten into trouble with the yakuza back in Japan about twelve years prior and their paths cross again when Fuji is sold into Tezuka's service as a slave.  There is a large amount of SMUT, BDSM and dark, adult themes that you should be wary of - especially if you're underaged.  It is also a very brilliant piece of work that is still in progress and you will probably regret it if you don't read.

Title: Memory
Author: BlueAyu
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Pairing: Tezuka Kunimitsu x Fuji Syusuke, Golden Pair, Momoshiro Takeshi x Echizen Ryoma, Inui Sadaharu x Kaidoh Kaoru, mentioned Mizuki Hajime x Fuji Yuuta
Brief Summary: Set in the future (again).  The Regulars come back for a reunion at Fuji's place and relationships that were broken when half of them left are mended through Christmas at Fuji's house.  Though the characterisation isn't top-notch here (and I am being cruel), the sweetness abound is a treat.  This fic also has a MizukixYuuta prequel called "Anything for You", though I haven't exactly gone through it because I'm not a big fan of MizukixYuuta.

Title: Merry Xmas!
Author: moribayashi
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Pairing: Tezuka Kunimitsu x Fuji Syusuke
Brief Summary: It's Christmas and Tezuka has just received a phonecall from Fuji saying that he has to fly to the South Pole because National Geographic wants to feature Emperor Penguins on the cover of the January issue.  Which causes Tezuka to get angry and jealous (of the penguins!) because he had prepared the perfect Christmas for them.  And, fluff ensues.  XD

Title: Misbehaviour
Author: ruji
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Pairing: Tezuka Kunimitsu x Fuji Syusuke
Brief Summary: If you didn't know I'm a ruji fangirl, then you should know now.  This is another one of her TezuFuji lemons for 30_lemons and it's pretty clean compared to most of her other ones.  The Regulars are on a bus to Hokkaido (you actually can't do that XD) and Fuji wakes up from a nightmare to find his hand on Tezuka's crotch where he landed due to shock.  Then he gives him a blowjob on the bus and halfway through it Eiji sticks his head up and asks for Fuji from about three seats in front and Tezuka has to do some quick thinking XD.

Title: New Year's Dance
Author: risquedreams
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Pairing: Tezuka Kunimitsu x Fuji Syusuke
Brief Summary: Tezuka is spending the New Year with Fuji and his family.  Fuji and his cousins are dancing to celebrate and Tezuka watches him and contemplates their strange relationship.  It's restrained and elegant in style, not giving much away but not ambiguous in its meaning.  It also presents a very beautiful atmosphere.

13th-Apr-2006 07:33 pm - SasukexNaruto & Tenipuri Recs
KYAAA... exams are over! Go us! xD well i guess you all know what that means... more recs.. >.> since this is flaming_icicles reccing, there is no such thing as no Naruto recs.. xD you shall be indulged and captivated by my beauty the fics *bricked*

(aka. famous fics that you should have read if you're a die-hard fan like me, or if you're not, start with the best)

Title: Touch the Parade
Author: ceresi
Pairings: SasuNaru
Rating: PG-13
Original Fic Summary: The only thing left for him now - and maybe the only thing he'd ever had - was to crawl his way through this darkness, somehow, this deep unending darkness, towards the only light he could see.
My Two-Cent: This fic is an AU. And if you know me well, you know i detest AU save for a VERY selected few. This is one of them. Why? Because theres a twist in it which COMPLETELY stunned me at the end. Truthfully, i started reading this and didn't understand much at the beginning. I was very tempted to give up but i didn't because i wanted to know why everyone likes this fic. I'm glad i didn't because it would be my lost, not reading this masterpiece. Spoiler for after ep. 129 and includes amazing use of tarot cards and the circus. There's Sasuke, there's Naruto, there's a circus and there's ninjas. How can this all be interlinked in an AU fic? Read to find out. (and don't stop till you reach the very end)
Status: One-shot - complete

Author: lazzchan and questofdreams
Pairings:

My Two-Cent: Niou is love and a sap, Yagyuu is clueless but thats what makes them love! I shall shower you with a quote or two!
“Niou-kun, I doubt that we will make anything less than a scene when we walk out into the open with me tied to a rope and at your mercy.”
“How perceptive of you Yagyuu,”...“But you must be forgetting that I live to make a scene.”

Pairings:

 Sometimes you don't appreciate the value of what you've got, until you don't have it any more.
